WACO Aviation Lecture Series



Ejection Experiences Shared by Dr. Bateman

On Thursday night, January 26th, Dr. Robert Bateman, Lt. Col. Ret. USAF will give a lecture entitled “Survival from Ejections.” West Point graduate and former USAF pilot had to parachute from a disabled aircraft twice. Both ejections were over water and he will be discussing these experiences.

Dr. Bateman, a 1957 West Point graduate, had a twenty year career in the Air Force, with over 4500 hours in aircraft such as the F-100, F-4D, and F-111. As a flight instructor, he taught in the T-33, T-37, and T-38. He has flown 225 combat missions in the B-57, and has been awarded the Silver Star, DFC with four oak leaf clusters, Meritorious Service Medal, and numerous Air Medals. He has earned a Master of Science degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the Air Force Institute of Technology, and after his retirement, earned a Master of Arts degree in Experimental Psychology from the University of Dayton. He also holds a doctorate in Industrial Engineering from Texas A&M University with a specialty in Human Factors Engineering. In addition to his Air Force experience as a flight and academic instructor and some time spent as a substitute teacher in public schools, Dr. Bateman has taught college-level undergraduate and graduate students in aviation-related courses in the principles of flight, human factors, physiology, psychology, management, airport operations, spatial disorientation, accident investigation, and safety. He is a volunteer speaker for the Wright B Flyer as well as a member of the AOPA, Air Force Association, Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, the Order of Daedalians, the Association of Aviation Psychologists, and the University Aviation Association.
